PART ONE:
What is a film or television show that when you first saw it you liked it a great deal but today you simply cannot stand to view again anymore? Did you have a print and subsequently sell it?

PART TWO:
What is a film or television show that you own that you absolutely never get tired of viewing again and again?

PART THREE:
What film or television show that you own do you watch when you need to feel better that always works for you?

Since everyone has their own likes and dislikes, the responses should be quite interesting!

Hi Joe,interesting questions, if I may I'll divide the TV stuff to DVD
P.1 A TV show I liked, but went off would be "Lost In Space".
A film would be "What's Up Tiger Lily" S/8. Quickly sold.

P.2.A TV show I never tire of, I'll pick two, "Lovejoy" & "I, Claudius"
In the film catagory it would be anything by Ray Harryhausen.

P.3 a TV show that always cheers me up would be Phil Silvers
in "Bilko".
In the film catagory anything by the "Carry On" team.

I watched Seinfeld religiously in first run. I more or less ignore it in reruns.

Films I could watch again and again and again: The Kid Brother (1926), House of Wax (1953), The Blob (1958), Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, The Great Escape, and The Omega Man.

Two of my great pick-me-up movies are Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein.

1) Happy Days.

2) Everybody Loves Raymond.

3) Almost any Cary Grant comedy. Nobody before or after has done it as well.

Its interesting that some of the answers are heavily influenced by where the person lives. While it makes sense, with international distribution and syndication its nonetheless worth noting.
